I'm looking for a tool which will take a dataset of tuples indicating
the year of birth and death of a person:

(1872, 1950, "Sri Aurobindo")
(1821, 1910, "Mary Baker Eddy")
(1831, 1891, "HP. Blavatksy")

And graph them out, in bars, annotating them with the person's name.

A simple spreadsheet would've worked, but they seem to start from
zero. Thus, I would only be able to indicate the span of life (by
subtracting death year from birth year).
